HEALTHCAREfirst will complement ResMed’s existing software solutions offered by Brightree, a wholly owned subsidiary ranked as one of the top 100 healthcare IT companies in the United States.

“Joining ResMed, with their purpose of changing lives with every breath, is an exciting opportunity for our HEALTHCAREfirst team, as our joint mission is linked to improving quality of life for patients in out-of-hospital healthcare,” said J. Kevin Porter, HEALTHCAREfirst ’s president and CEO. “We believe our combined resources and investment capabilities will make an even more impactful improvement on the patient experience and our customers’ business outcomes at a time when they’re under increased reimbursement and regulatory pressures.”
The transaction’s financial terms were not disclosed, but the transaction will not be material to ResMed’s consolidated financial results. The transaction is expected to be finalized before the end of the first quarter of ResMed’s fiscal year 2019 (September 30, 2018), subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals.
